Two Honeycrisp Apples with a Linen Napkin – 6" x 8" – Oil on Canvas Panel – SOLD

This is the second painting of white linen. I added another apple to the mix, and since the apple on the side was deeper in value, I also got to play with how to represent reflected light in a convincing manner without it taking over my shadow shape on the apple.

I really love the various puzzles and problems that can be created when deciding to paint. I guess this is why I find painting to be so satisfying and relaxing. I can tackle a problem, experience the journey of investigation, and then look at the end result and analyze what the results were. When I was in architecture school, this was what I loved most to, the investigation, research, and analysis of the found results.
